Walkie Talkie close to fully let following latest Deals

Posted on 7 September, 2015 by Neil Bird

The Walkie Talkie has shrugged off its recent Carbuncle Cup award by building further upon its incredible commercial success.


Today, joint owners Canary Wharf Group and Land Securities have announced the letting of level 34 of 20 Fenchurch Street to Castleton Commodities International (CCI) on a long-term lease – taking the building to 98 per cent let.

The deal follows the recent letting of level 31 to credit rating agency DBRS and means that there is now just 15,000 sq ft of lettable space remaining at the City of London office tower.

Magesh Nair, Chief Operating Officer at CCI, said: “We’re pleased to have secured space at this marquee location for our new London headquarters. The building provides us with the operational resilience we require for our business, and is an optimal environment for our employees and visitors.”

Head of Europe at DBRS, Detlef Scholz, commented: “We look forward to occupying this very impressive and at the same time efficient space, accommodating the growth of our business. We believe that this location will be well accepted by our analysts, but also appreciated by customers visiting us at our new offices.”

Welcoming the latest occupiers Kaelea Fenn-Smith, Head of Commercial at Land Securities, said 20 Fenchurch Street’s unrivalled views of the capital and its enviable amenities were key factors in attracting a diverse range of global companies to the building.

Richard Archer, Managing Director, Offices at Canary Wharf Group, added that Castleton Commodities and DBRS are representative of the calibre of occupiers already resident in the building, citing the spacious floorplates and the Sky Garden as additional attractions to tenants.

Knight Frank and CBRE advised Land Securities and Canary Wharf Group. CBRE advised both new occupiers.
